But something went wrong with Alexandre Lacazette in the match against Leicester City as the Frenchman started to celebrate in the wrong way after the third goal of the Gunners against Leicester City.Advertisement  Advertisement The match was not really easy for the Gunners as Leicester City got the lead in the match with the own Goal of Hector Bellerin at the 31st minute of the match. Unai Emery has again not started Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang together in this match. Aubameyang came into the field at the 61st minute of the match.

Arsenal won the match with the margin of 3-1 to complete their seven match winning streak in the Premier League. Alexandre Lacazette was a little bit off colour in the match against Leicester City.
